Getting vegetarian cuisine that is filling, delicious and pocket-friendly is easily accessible in Lagos, as there are several restaurants around the city that have menus catering to both vegetarians and vegans, and we’ve rounded up some of the best.
Established in 2013, Veggie Victory is the first vegetarian- and vegan-only Nigerian restaurant. With a fantastic location in the heart of Freedom Park – with a view of the gardens and many more cultural attractions – the restaurant offers both continental and traditional menus tailored to suit the needs of its clientele. Western-style dishes and snacks like soy hot dog, tofu scramble with yam chips, and shawarmas are presented alongside eba, amala, egusi, jollof-rice and efo riro.
Rated as the best Japanese restaurant in Lagos – some would even say in all of Nigeria – Izanagi Japanese Cuisine is a quiet and cosy restaurant that tends to its clients’ needs with efficiency. With a gluten-free menu that includes mushrooms, seaweed salads, sushi, and maki, the vegetarian meals also include vegan options. The cocktails are also delicious!
Offering mainly Asian meals at affordable prices, Spice Route is one of the best places to get vegetarian dishes with Indian flair in Lagos. Offering delicacies like vegetable samosa, pakora, onion bhaji and many more, the restaurant also has vegan options, a great ambience and excellent service.
The rock’n’roll-themed Hard Rock Café is a vegetarian- and vegan-friendly restaurant housed in a post-modern space. The café provides its clientele with a variety of meals that are both filling and excellently prepared. Although on the high side, their prices are not too bad for the quality of food provided. Their mac and cheese comes highly recommended and so do their baked goods.
A vegetarian-friendly, Bulgarian-Lebanese restaurant, B.L. Restaurant serves a wide range of European cuisines. Their home-made sweets are delicious and so are the different types of salad – the beetroot and rocket is especially yummy.
A Pan-Africanist space, the Yellow Chilli’s goal is to put Nigerian cuisine on the world map by exploring new ways of making meals. So far it has Nigerians spellbound and continues to introduce these amazing tastes to the world. The restaurant has made available ample Nigerian meals specifically tailored to vegetarian and vegan tastes.
